WooHoo! Caught my first one through the salt ice! Definitely the biggest ice fish I've pulled up, I'm ruined! What a blast!
Its so bright and shiny...what a beast. You will go from ice fishing to fly fishing in the same week just like I did. Must have been fun and exciting, good share.
I cant believe ice fishing section is still being posted.
Jedi Salmon Powers Activated!
Wow, that is a huge sheefish man.
Very cool! Sheefish is at the top of the list of fish I haven't caught that I would like to. I've always envisioned it being on a fly rod, but through the ice would be awesome!
Awesome fish! Whata a chromer. Definatley on the bucket list.
How about some more details?
and ice fishing on salt water!!
That's something I have wanted to do for a long time.
Nice job and what a sheefish!! Just like everyone else that is one fish on my bucket list, one of these days it will happen.
Very nice! That is just plain cool! Bronco, I agree, lets plan it and make it happen!
for you guys wanting to get one of these the time to come up here is now if you want to get them through the ice. just fly to town and walk out from the hotel...
Beautiful fish! Can't wait for late July to roll around. Gonna get me some of those
I think I read that they are pretty aggressive fish......how do they fight?
They put up a better fight on a rod in summer, but jigging them with a Nixik is a lesson in lifting, not the standard 'fight' a fish usually gives. They like being close to the bottom, so you jig a couple feet off and they will rise to the lure. In summer we catch them at the bottom of our Salmon nets.
If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.
"Dam it all", The Beaver told me.....
Nice length on that beast! 2-3 weeks til I can get at em on the flyrod!
Here's one on the fly for ya
